Paul Pogba Injury: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirms yet another injury to star midfielder and gives possible return date in a presser ahead of Wolves clash
Manchester United are set to face Wolverhampton in the FA Cup tomorrow night. However, they will be without the services of star midfielder Paul Pogba. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed that Paul Pogba had been “advised to have an operation by his people.”
The midfielder had only just returned from a 3-month absence. He made two substitute appearances since his return in a bid to regain match fitness. However, he will be side-lined for a few more weeks now. Manchester United expect him to return to their fold before the end of the month though.
Speaking on Paul Pogba and his injury, a somewhat irate Solskjaer said:
“Here we go again, FA Cup third round and you’re talking about Paul again. Paul came back after a long spell out, two games, couldn’t go to Burnley, felt his ankle was sore. We did a scan, and it’s not the same injury, it’s a different injury, and when you get that scan, you consult your own medical people as well, like I did. You want the best second opinion, and the advice was to have it done. It’s not a major one and probably, as I said, three or four weeks.”

Paul Pogba has only made 7 appearances for Manchester United and is set to miss a few more matches. However, Solskjaer has repeatedly said that the midfielder will not be made available for sale.
Manchester United will travel to the Molineux tomorrow as they chase a record equalling 13th FA Cup title. However, under Solskjaer, the Red Devils have failed to beat Wolves at their home even once. They’ve lost twice and drawn once since the Norwegian took over from Mourinho.
